PS4 Doubles the Competition When it Comes to Ubisoft Game Sales

A French favourite

Without an early 2015 blockbuster release, Ubisoft's revenue has taken a hit this year.

Back from the dead

Resident Evil Zero may have originally released on the GameCube, but it was in development for the Nintendo 64 prior to that.

Nuke the Fridge with Call of Duty: Black Ops III's Juggernog Edition 

Cold case

Another year, another ludicrously expensive special edition for a Call of Duty game. However, 2015's entry is slightly more interesting, as, alongside the usual tat, it will come packed with a working Call of Duty: Black Ops III themed mini-fridge.

Lightning strikes twice

Before you start, yes, we're well aware that there seems to be a new Warriors game hitting the market every other month, but given the recent quality of Koei's hack and slash franchises, we're not too worried - at least, not yet.
